Welcome to Arkansas State University!

Faculty Resource - Syllabus Language

The following language has been approved by the Office of Institutional Integrity and Title IX and the ASU System Legal Counsel for use in faculty syllabi regarding Title IX.

Title IX and Child Maltreatment Reporting

As an Arkansas State University faculty member, it is my responsibility and my privilege to contribute to the creation of a safe learning environment for all ASU students. Because of my position as a member of the A-State faculty, I am also a mandatory reporter for purposes of Title IX and the Arkansas Child Maltreatment Act. I want you to be able to share information related to your life experiences with me or in class during this course. However, I also want you to understand that: (1) under the ASU System Child Maltreatment Reporting Policy, I must immediately report known or suspected child maltreatment by contacting both the Child Abuse Hotline and the University Policy Department; and (2) under the A-State Title IX Grievance Procedure, I must report to the A-State Title IX Coordinator incidences of sexual discrimination that I observe or that are reported to me. For purposes of Title IX, sexual discrimination includes sexual harassment, sexual assault, stalking, domestic violence, and dating violence occurring within the Title IX jurisdiction. Reports of sexual assault, sexual violence, stalking, domestic violence, and dating violence will also be reported to law enforcement authorities. You may also report instances of sexual discrimination directly by contacting the A-State at Title IX office or title9@astate.edu.

Educational Equity Statement

A-State takes great pride to foster a diverse and inclusive environment for students, faculty, and staff.  Acts of discrimination and/or harassment on the basis of color, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, race, age, national origin, religion, marital status, veteran status, genetic information or disability in any of its practices, policies or procedures are not tolerated. This includes, but is not limited to, employment, admissions, educational services, programs or activities which it operates or financial aid. It is the responsibility of all departments and all personnel, supervisory and non-supervisory, to see that this policy is implemented throughout the university.

When applicable, students are encouraged to follow the Student Rights Grievance Procedure outlined in the Student Handbook. Reports can also be submitted to institutionalequity@astate.edu. Incidents involving claims of disability based discrimination should be reported to Access and Accommodations Services using their Grievance Process Form.

Direct all inquiries regarding the nondiscrimination policy to the Office of Institutional Integrity and Title IX, 870-680-4161 and the Administration Building, Room 104.
